Some description

Carrie is lonely. Carrie is angry. Carrie will fit in. Whatever it costs. 

New blood courses through this contemporary rock musical, based on Stephen King’s haunting story of teen angst, religious fervor, and the complicated relationship between a mother and daughter. As Carrie navigates the harsh realities of high school bullying and her overprotective mother, a new and violent power is unleashed inside her—and she’ll use it.

2ndStage is Studio’s playground for emerging artists, offering innovative and thrillingly eclectic programming with shorter rehearsal periods and smaller budgets than our other productions, with a spirit of exuberance and experiment.



Studio Theatre’s riveting production of Carrie: The Musical will transport you to another world!

You should see Carrie: The Musical because it’s jarring (as expected) and takes you back to high school times in a completely twisted way.

Theater is about taking risks and Studio 2ndStage has done that and the payoff is worth it.
